If you take away those god-awful, spinning dollar signs (seriously, does anyone actually like them??)
Yes.

Fair enough. :P

If the doors were closed off at the bottom, I could probably tolerate the dollar signs more, but right now, the whole thing just looks like a jumbled up mess to me.  I do like the concept, however.  Perhaps once I've seen the light border a few more times, it will grow on me.  It's definitely going to take some getting used to, though.
Pardon my language, but I do believe we all need to calm the f*** down.

Has the show ever announced before that a new game would be debuting on a different episode?

Yes - Bob did twice - in Spring of 1980, Bob mentioned that they would be adding a few new games and possibly one would debut the following day (most likely Barker's Bargain Bar followed soon after by Trader Bob).  Also, in the Summer of 1983, they needed to promote the debut of The Phone Home Game in order to get viewers to send in post cards.  Bob said the game would debut on Sept. 12th.

Here's what i'd do with the doors motif at the opening....yes....get rid of the spinning dollar signs....but,have the doors close on the last contestant and use the doors as a transition to Drew coming out of the big doors...

I don't mind the idea, but I feel that it unfairly takes the focus away from the fourth contestant in lieu of more thrown on Drew Carey.
Torgo has left the building. John and I never really cared for the way he presented himself.

I envision the light border looking something like this, though perhaps not cycling through colors quite so frequently:
